A Middleton takeaway has brought home two awards from the first-ever English Asian Food Awards after a glamorous ceremony was held at the Manchester Mercure Piccadilly Hotel on 11 February.
Barbecue, a family-run business which serves traditional kebabs cooked in charcoal-fired clay ovens, won both the regional and overall award in the takeaway and home delivery of the year category.
Owner Tahir Zahir said: “Winning two awards is a massive achievement for Barbecue. It is a great recognition for the region, Middleton and Manchester as Barbecue was the only local contender.
“I would like to thank my team for their hard work, and I would like to thank my customers for nominating Barbecue.
“This award motivates us to deliver high quality and delicious food and keep our customers happy with wonderful service.”
Barbecue, which first opened its doors in 2000, was shortlisted last year for best takeaway in the country’s search for the nation’s best kebab.
The English Asian Food Awards ceremony is the first of its kind and exists to recognise and reward Asian restaurants, takeaways and other food establishments across England for working hard to service the Asian food industry, which is growing and diversifying each year.
The event was organised by the UK’s leading ethnic consulting and promotions organisation Oceanic Consulting, finalists at the Asian Media Awards 2017 for their impact in the Marketing & PR Sector. Oceanic Consulting are responsible for some of the most successful and well-known events in the country, including the British Indian Awards, the Curry Awards, and the British Muslim Awards.
